Number Name of stall holder(s) (Sketch) of contribution Stall requirements
1 Brandon Labelle Social Music Stall

Music circulates through everyday life as a vibrant material, acting as a generative intrusion and supplement to daily rituals, sudden experiences and social connections. Songs come to embed themselves within our body-psyche, participating in the making of emotional life. What kinds of memories and experiences is music connected to, and in what ways do we carry music around with us to impart meaning to the ordinary?

Open and soft form of intersection of picnic, talk, workshop and siesta. some tags: laying, dis-play-ing ("Whatever colors you have in your mind, I’ll show them to you and you’ll see them shine"), breathing, netting, talking, reading, touch, rolling, weltering, vanishing, infiltration, osculation, vibration, formless...

Through Bodily Experience or Through Theoretical Investigation? I would like to talk about the possibility of treating researcher's body as a source of knowledge on urban space? Is phenomenological approach that put our bodily experience in the center of knowledge a good perspective to investigate the impact of urban tissue of it's dwellers? Or this kind of perspective in much more burdened with class distinction between the researcher and other potential users. I will talk about the risks (relating to Bourdieu's notion of habitus) and possible gains that can bring radical phenomenology (in relation to feminist approach towards urban space).

18 Michał Kozłowski
Can truth be said in public space? The Antiquity has known several modes of staging the truth in public space. At the same time many found it problematic that truth can ever be reconciled with the public. We are facing today the same doubt. Extending the analysis of Michel Foucault I will try to examine radical, subversive and materialistic strategy of telling the truth in public space adopted by the ancient Cynics. Will this strategy fit to our times? Under what conditions?

First, the citizens! Could this slogan come true in the city policies? / I would like to propose the critical, participatory, ramified peer2peer discussion on new models of resistance against privatising the cities. We will concentrate on the idea of natural right to the city, explored by Henri Lefebvre and many others. Invited are artists, researchers, city activists and EVERYONE, interested in the reflection on justice and equality. I would present some practical examples from our struggles in Wrzeszcz (Gdansk/Poland). And some other initiatives, like e.g. the U.S. nation-wide coalition Right to the City.
